    We are a big family of eight, free range kids and a couple of adults that live on a beautiful piece of land in a hidden valley near the Motueka river in a place known as Ngatimoti, growing our food, living simply but very socially with friends and neighbours often visiting or being visited. We live in a yurt and a tiny house and we also have a very cosy little cottage called the Milking shed where guests and friends are welcome to stay. Our kids are largely homeschooled finding their own interests and playing the days and nights away. We enjoy many different activities and interests including gardening, processing and preparing homemade food, making bread, preserving, fermented foods etc., wood-working, hand making beehives, tree houses, building projects that support our lifestyle and living are ongoing and welcomed. We are interested in may things from arts and crafts, music, natural living, homesteading, playing, looking after the environment. People, the land and living sensitively is important to us. Current projects include establishing new gardens, building a wood workshop, top bar beehives, another yurt space including floor.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We have a very unique home based natural living lifestyle, creating our own living spaces, making our own food, caring for the land in our own small way. We have several languages English, German and a little Italian to offer as well as many passions and interests underpinned by a typical Kiwi culture of openness, curiosity, friendliness and an attitude of giving things a go.

    Tasman Bays is known for the great outdoors mountains, river, beaches, national parks, trekking, hiking, kayaking etc. There is a little bit of everything from markets, music venues to very quiet swimming holes. There is no public transport but if you don't have your own there is people living on the land that you can catch a ride with to town quite often. Many places within biking distance and few bikes to be used.
